|AFSCME Local 60 - Municipal & School District Employees of Dane County|
In far too many parts of the country, right-wing extremists are succeeding in their attempts to keep Americans away from the polls.
That’s why the members and retirees of AFSCME plan to knock on more doors, make more phone calls and turn out more votes than ever before in a mid-term election.
We've recently launched the #TurnOutForWhat campaign on Twitter and Tumblr. People across the country are sharing why they're turning out to the polls on Nov. 4.
"We're still very much in the fight for a better tomorrow and now is not the time to give up. I want to be able to tell future generations that I did my best to protect their basic right to vote."
Senator Warren has a message for AFSCME members. While Senator Warren is not on a ballot this November, she reminds us why it’s so important that we get out to vote this fall.
Welcome to the official website of AFSCME Local 60. We are municipal and school district employees working in Dane county.
You are apart of a diverse, powerful organization fueled by its members.
Local 60 is just that – Local. We are working with you here on the ground in Dane county.
A strong union is better able to protect workers’ rights, fight for workplace improvements, and quality of life on the job.

Walt is employed by the City of Madison Police Department as their Master Scheduler, Walt works on various work groups such as Chair of and member of the Chief’s Civilian’s Advisory Council, Awards Nominations and civilian goal setting.

Shout out to AFSCME Activist Rick Marx for his great comments in this news article! #1union
Opponents of labor unions were rubbing their hands gleefully earlier this summer when the Supreme Court ruled that home care workers didn't have to pay "fair share" fees. But our union is a testament to the power of collective action.
